In August 2005, 43-year-old Jose Molina was working on a commercial cargo train car when he slipped from the car and fell to his death. Molina was employed by the Union City Grain Company at the time of his death, and was reportedly helping some coworkers move the railway cars when the incident occurred. Molina’s widow filed suit against Canadian National Railroad, the parent company of the Union City Grain Co., alleging that her husband’s death was the result of negligence on the part of the company, which had refused to furnish a locomotive engine that would have enabled the workers to move the railway cars safely. Mrs. Molina’s suit against the company requests more than $10 million in punitive and compensatory damages.
